This Missouri gal is headed to the Big Apple! It will be my first time traveling for business. My feelings: anxious. But the good kind of anxious. I've never been to New York City before. I'll be there with three other GoComics colleagues and some pretty cool people from our sister company, Andrews McMeel Publishing. I'm grateful that I get to work for a company that does rad things, like, have booths on the floor of massive events like NYCC and SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con). Roughly 105,000 people attended NYCC last year and 126,000 people attended SDCC back in July; that's a lot of peeps. I can't wait to meet all 105k+ when you stop by the GoComics/Andrews McMeel booth (#821). (Wink!)
Those who stop by our booth will be in for a treat. We've a got some great cartoonists lined up this year; here's a few: Bill Amend (FoxTrot), Mark Tatulli (Heart of the City and Lio) and The Oatmeal/Matt Inman (How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You). So, if you're attending, please come by the booth. We have great things for you: comic collections available for purchase, free autographs and free comics! Yeah, FREE! You can see our full event schedule here. Can't make it NYCC? I'll be chronicling our journey through social media, so be sure you're following GoComics on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram (username: GoComics).
For fun, some of you may have already seen this, but here's a tiny peek of our GoComics/Andrews McMeel booth backdrop:
Come see us, NYCCers!
